About this item

The ultimate in pressure cooker books--with recipes for breakfasts, soups, mains, grains, vegetables, and desserts--each adapted for stovetop or electric models.The old-fashioned pressure cooker has been rediscovered by modern home cooks, both for its quick-cooking powers (dried beans are perfectly soft in 35 minutes; risottos are tender in 20 minutes) and for its ability to infuse foods with intense flavor (carrots become sweeter, meat more savory). The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book has recipes for every device, stovetop and electric, no matter the manufacturer. Whether you're seeking an adventurous array of spices, found in dishes such as Cherry Chipotle Pulled Chicken or Smashed Sweet Potatoes with Pineapple and Ginger, or pure comfort food, like French Toast Bread Pudding or Classic Pot Roast and Potatoes, you'll find the perfect recipe--each labeled by level of ease--to feed your family. This is the only pressure cooker book you'll ever need.
The ultimate in slow-cooker books--with 500 recipes, each adapted for stovetop or electric models. From breakfast to soups, mains to grains, vegetables to desserts, this is the only book you'll ever need to master your pressure cooker.

The old-fashioned pressure cooker has transformed everyday meals in the modern world with its quick-cooking powers: dried beans are perfectly soft in 35 minutes, risottos are tender in 20 minutes, and rice pudding goes from raw grain to perfect treat in under 10 minutes. Pressure cookers infuse their foods with intense flavor: carrots become sweeter, meat more savory, and tomato sauces more rich and piquant, and all in half the cooking time. After conquering one slow-cooking device in The Great American Slow Cooker Book, Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough have decoded the pressure cooker with cooking times and pressures for both stovetop and electric models. Each family-sized recipe is labeled for its level of difficulty, and they cover every kind of dish imaginable: delectable breakfast bowls, fall-off-the-bone beef, pork, and poultry, brightly flavored vegetables and creamy grains, and even a few elegant desserts. This is the pressure cooker book to end them all.
